WH Denies NYT Report Claiming Trump Said Haitian Immigrants 'All Have AIDS'

The New York Times reported today that United States' President Donald Trump described Nigerians as people living in huts and that they would not want to return to them, if allowed to visit America.

The Times report said Kelly and Tillerson attempted to react by saying a large number of the visas were for here and now voyagers, yet that as Trump proceeded with, Kelly and Miller "turned their rage" against Tillerson, who tossed his arms up and countered that maybe he should quit issuing visas inside and out.

Mr Trump was said to have made the comments during the meeting with senior staff in June, at which he is said to have complained too many were receiving visas.

"General Kelly, General McMaster, Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Nielsen and all other senior staff actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims", said Sanders.

According to the New York Times he said 15,000 had come from Haiti before adding that they "all have AIDS".

Once they had seen what the US had to offer, those immigrants would never "go back to their huts" in Africa, Trump reportedly said.

"And it's both sad and telling the New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous "sources" anyway".

But as the debate progressed, Kelly and Stephen Miller, Trump's domestic policy adviser, reportedly began blaming Tillerson for the flood of foreigners.

While the White House did not deny the overall description of the meeting, officials strenuously insisted that Mr. Trump never used the words "AIDS" or "huts" to describe people from any country.

The president said they "all have AIDS", the Times reported, based off one person who attended the meeting and another person who was briefed about it by a different person in attendance.

The Times said its report was the result of more than three dozen meetings. The president has repeatedly seized on incidents of terrorism and violence worldwide to condemn US immigration policy and to chide politicians to "get smart" about the threat.

When the president's first travel ban was blocked, the Times reported, Trump was "furious" and often took his anger out on White House officials.
